Morocco born American musician, French Montana has donated the sum of $100,000 to the Suubi Health Clinic in Uganda, making real his commitment to alleviating the challenges of the people which he experienced while he was in Uganda in March to shoot his latest video, ‘Unforgettable’.

French was inspired to film the “Unforgettable” video in Uganda after watching a dance clip of the country’s Triplets Ghetto Kids on YouTube. The rapper, who grew up in Morocco before moving to New York with his family at age 13, felt a deep African pride with the project. (His parents’ wedding day photograph from Morocco appears on the “Unforgettable” single cover).
He had an awesome experience with the Ugandan youths who featured in his video. He learnt new dance steps from them but was moved to help when he learnt of the challenges of new mums and babies. Asides the donation, French Montana has also launched a dance competition to raise more funds to improve health services in Uganda.
The management of the hospital is committing the donation to purchasing ambulances, premature incubators, cribs and building a blood bank and maternity clinic for the community.
